LOTV - Be Mine...

TGIF...happy Friday, everyone!

Today's card is filled with the spirit of Valentine love, but made up in a colorway that's just short of ordinary.

Lili of the Valley has a beautiful new paper pad out called Mr. & Mrs. and as beautiful as these papers are for wedding and anniversary cards, I thought they'd be just as special on a Valentine, using a monochromatic white/grey/black combo with just a touch of that's just what I used it for...

The floral cluster is one large dusty pink rose made using Spellbinders' Rose Creation dies, surrounded with smaller mulberry paper roses, grey pearl stick pins, and a small pearl flourish...

To the right, a piece of white lace colored with Distress Inks to complement the paper colors, and highlighted with a couple Valentine stamps from Set 22, Love Sentiments, shabbily stamped in Watering Can grey ink just above the lace trim...

And the main sentiment, also from Love Sentiments, sitting atop a little cluster in the lower right corner...

Inside, I used a die cut and a sweet little sentiment from the  A5 Verses set...
